There really wasn't any events leading up to our accident that I was aware of. I have not contacted General Motors as of yet, my internet has been down and was only fixed this evening around 4:00. But back to my accident, my steering locked up on me and all lost all control of my car. Sorry I don't have more information. I just know my wife and I are lucky to be alive. Thank you!
